Lame duck governor pardons rock legend Jim Morrison

By

The late singer and frontman of the rock band “The Doors,” Jim Morrison, was posthumously pardoned Thursday afternoon by outgoing Florida Governor Charlie Crist. Morrison was charged with indecent exposure back in 1970 for a concert in Miami. Trent Kelly spoke to singer-songwriter Rod MacDonald from Delray Beach, who teaches a rock and roll history class, about what this pardon means for Morrison’s legacy.
